Roc360 is a financial services and asset management platform for residential property investors in the United States. The firm connects fragmented loan markets with institutional capital through a branchless network of third-party originators, brokers, and in-house sales teams to originate loans to property investors who buy, rehab, resell, and/or rent properties. The firm originates and services multiple business-purpose loan products (“BPLs”), via various sales channels which, together with ancillary service offerings, provide an end-to-end experience that drives repeat customer transactions and profitability. The firm’s loan products include residential transitional bridge loans (“RTLs”) (including single and multi-family properties) and Rental Loans (including single property rentals and rental portfolios).

Founded in 2014, Roc360 is headquartered in NYC, has approximately 350 employees globally across three continents, and can originate loans in 46 states and Washington, D.C. The firm’s founders have worked together for over 20 years and most of its senior management team has also enjoyed a long tenure at the firm. Through its proprietary technology-enabled Third-Party Originator and Direct-to-Borrower lending channels and strong brand recognition, the firm has funded over $10bn in loans since its inception.
